Engineers have come up with a cool and awesome way to save passengers aboard a plane in the wake of an emergency.
The design comprises of a detachable cabin which can be done way in an event of emergency, saving the life of the passengers. The detached cabin lands over water or land safely. Check this-
But an engineer has revealed a design for an aircraft with a detachable cabin that could release in an emergency situations. During take-off, landing or flight, the redesigned cabin is released from the aircraft and touches down on water or land – saving everyone’s lives on board
are all for the cutting-edge design, while others are skeptical and feel it’s impractical. A few reservations pertain to the potential impact on the rest of the plane, the possibility of the detached cabin smashing into mountains or buildings and the escape plan for the pilots
‘The existing technology of using of Kevlar and carbon composites for fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, tail will be used during the design,’ Tatarenko explained . ‘It allows to partly compensate the weight of parachute system’
While another had concerns too: ‘This whole concept dramatically weakens the airframe because now you have joints and fittings to connect a fuselage and a body together where once you had a whole fuselage to reinforce the airframe’
Last year, Tatarenko received patents for an invention with an escape capsule system that would rescue passengers on board. The capsule would be released within seconds of the emergency situation and through a rear hatch at the tail end of the plane
Surviving A Plane Crash
“Surviving in a plane crash is possible. While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor”, said Vladimir Tatarenko, an aviation engineer.
